Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro stay close to play-off pack?

All three points for Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough side on Sunday against visitors Blackburn Rovers would see the hosts move level on points with 6th placed Bournemouth and the play-off pack and having won five of their last seven matches overall, Boro will be in confident mood here.

Recent wins against Millwall, Luton Town, Birmingham City, Wycombe Wanderers and Nottingham Forest have helped the north-east club stay in touch with the top six in the Championship while also possessing a soldi home record of 7-2-2 15/5.

Middlesbrough’s success this season has been underpinned by a solid defensive unit which has kept a total of six clean sheets so far this season at the Riverside Stadium, and along with Swansea City, Boro also possess the best defensive record at home too.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Blackburn trip Boro up?

Tony Mowbray revisits one of his old clubs when he takes his Blackburn Rovers side to the Riverside Stadium but two wins out of their last nine matches overall in the Championship suggest an away win here may seem unlikely.

Those wins came in the shape of a 2-1 win win at home over Rotherham united and a 2-0 win at Birmingham City but four defeats and three draws have ensured that Rovers remain drifting around in a mid-table position in the Championship in 12th place.

Blackburn’s away record of 4-2-6 20/15 also indicates inconsistency while also losing three of their last four on the road but goals have historically been thin on the ground whenever these two teams meet as 11 of the last 12 meetings have been under 2.5 goals.
